According to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, the Arizona Diamondbacks and catcher Miguel Montero have agreed to a five year contract extension worth $60 million.

It is the richest deal in the history of the Diamondbacks and it will be announced in a press conference tomorrow afternoon. It does not give Montero any no trade or no movement protection.

Montero and the Diamondbacks have been discussing a possible extension over the winter, through spring training and until now. Now they have locked up one of the best catchers in Major League Baseball for the next five seasons.

Montero made the all star game for the first time last season and he also led the league in percentage throwing out base runners. He is one of the best fielders in the entire league, and his hitting ability is very solid and will continue to improve over the period of these five years/
